Deck SpotlightDirty Walt (4.0) Cards: Giant, Barbarians, Arrows, Fireball, Balloon, Witch, Minions, Fire spirits Main Cycle: At 10 elixir, Giant in the back, drop the Witch in the back once the Giant is past the Archer Tower. Once everything is past the river, have the Fire Spirits or Arrows queued up to destroy. Once air defenses are played, drop the Balloon in tandem with the behind the Giant. Balloon is best played past the bridges, to avoid building distractions. Barbs are for defense. Purple Flame (3.6) Cards: Prince, Minion Horde, Zap, Fireball, Spear Goblins, Goblins, Barbarians, Hog Rider Main Cycle: At 10 elixir, Hog Rider by the river on the edge of the map, goblins on the outside of hog. Get ready to zap then assist with Spear Goblins; or Fireball at the tower if your opponent counters with Barbarians. Prince should start from behind your Crown Tower, once at the river escort with goblins of your choice. The second before your prince hits the tower you should have launched your Fireball preemptively hitting opponent’s Barbarians (or other units) as soon as they come out. Your Minion Horde and Barbs are your defense most of the time.
Emails & Reviews
Emails (5)JayC I love your podcast! I listen to a lot of gaming podcasts and yours is one of the ones that I get excited about when I see a new episode is available. My favorite segment is when you share new deck ideas. I only wish the game offered more than three slots for decks. I now have my main two decks and my open spot just to test out the ones you guys talk about. Thank you and keep up the great work! Here is the main deck I am using right now is: Elix Collector (lvl 6) Witch (lvl 3) Wizard (lvl 6) Giant (lvl 6) Barbs (lvl 9) Hog RIDER (lvl 6) Poison (lvl 2) Prince (lvl 3) I usually start the match waiting until 10 elix then drop the giant followed by the witch. When they get to the river I drop the barbs in front of the group. Then at 4 elix drop the poison spell or at 5 drop the wizard at the river. It really takes no time for the tower to go down. Then either drop the elix collector to build back up or start pouring in troops to take out the middle tower. The prince and the hog are great for that late stage push or to counter down the opposite lane I start sending troops down. It is super aggressive but can be a really good defensive deck if needed with a good counter punch. Thanks for letting me share. JayC Bilbo Swaggins You guys are my one of my favourite podcasts! You help me learn so much about clash royale every week. You guys have so much enthusiasm and are extremely funny. Now that I have the touchi-Feely stuff out of the way, I had a question. I am starting a lets play on clash royale from the very start of the game for my Youtube channel *Cough It’s called Bilbo Swaggins* and I wanted to know what would be a good deck for arena 2. I have no more then the prince,mini pekka, spear goblins, goblin hut, the default stuff and the musketeer. LOVE? Your podcast keep up the great work. – (IRL Name) Aidan Or Bilbo Swaggins Justin Hey guys. Great podcast. Absolutely love it. I Harv tried to find more clash royale podcasts and none have compared to yours so thanks for the awesome podcast. My question is, are you guys considering doing podcasts on other games? For instance, some games that I love, Hearthstone, Overwatch, other popular mobile games, etc. I by no means am telling you to stop the clash royale podcast, but other podcasts about other games means more content, more interaction, and more exposure. Again thanks for the awesome podcast, and goodbye. Russell G. Hi Joe and Rob, Love your show and listen to it religiously. 2 things in my fan feedback email… 1. Actual CR phone casualty following rage throw – see attached photo… after a bad loss to a player ranked over a 100 trophies less than me and at the tail end of the largest death spiral ever known to man of at least 300-400 trophies, I threw my phone frisbie style – see attached pic for outcome of said throw. Do you know the address for Super Cell so I can send them a repair bill? Screen repair was quoted at $170 New Zealand Dollars (about 110 USD)…do you think they can include my phone repair in the 9 billion dollar Tencent acquisition deal? lol Maybe supercell should do what Nintendo did for the wii and issue wrist straps that attach your phone to your wrist so if you do actually rage throw it just flys round your wrist instead… 2nd item… 2. Clan wars.. One of my clan mates said there was a rumor of a clan wars feature coming.. do you know anything about this? How do you think it would work? The idea of a a fellow clan member vs opposition clan member format sounds awesome – especially if you could spectate the match. This would be the best way for Super Cell to break up the monotony of the win 10 lose 9 daily grind. Anyway I’m running a hog, poison cycle, tesla deck, I’m Level 8, 2200 trophy count. Been playing about 8 weeks. Looking to change to a L7 giant deck as hog not winning anywhere near as much since the balance changes. Clan Name = New Zealand (has blue flame as logo) about 23,000 trophies. Keep up the good work and excellent podcasts! Cheers Gnome73 (Auckland, New Zealand) Awesome Louis Hey Guys, Started to listen to your podcast a few weeks ago and love your work. My question to you is… If you were tasked by Supercell to create a new Legendary card by combining attributes from two common and/or rare cards what would you propose to Supercell? P.s. think this game is rigged cause I got 2 legendary cards in the space of a month. P.p.s. I hope you both get a legendary card soon. When you do feel free to let me know and I will play some friendly battles against you guys. Keep up the good work! Awesome Louis
Reviews (2)Buddha – Awesome job y’all (5 Stars) United States
Guys great podcast!!! Audio is professional quality and the hosts are very informative about the game. Just joined their clan(DarklordBuddha)after listening to the latest episode and it has been a great experience. Keep up the good work guys and see you in the arena. Out!!!
Hey guys, loving the show! MANvsMerik here from Steal the Demons. You have sucessfully refined your show to the point that i get excited when it loads. Now i need to take a trip to the store so i can start listening to it. I have grown to love the banter you two share, and being brothers you seem to have an ease with eachother that is hard to find. I lobe the deck spotlights for those times when your deck just isnt working. Keep the great decks coming and the great shows. LiveLoveClash!
